UK adds additional capacity as it identifies areas for further offshore wind development. The Crown Estate has published detail of plans for its next round of offshore windfarms – including proposed locations to be offered for new seabed rights – and said 7 GW, rather than 6 GW could now be developed. Following engagement with market and statutory stakeholders, updated proposals for Round 4 offshore wind leasing were unveiled at a stakeholder engagement event on 15 November 2018. The updates include The Crown Estate’s proposed refinement of available seabed regions – within which developers would have the opportunity to identify and propose sites. The work, underpinned by a detailed assessment of spatial constraints and developed in collaboration with statutory stakeholders, identifies five regions that The Crown Estate proposes to include in plans for a new leasing round, on the basis that they are technically feasible, include sufficiently large areas of available seabed for offshore wind development and have lower levels of development constraint.
